What does the future hold for museums as we enter the age of AI? Can a tech-savvy museum that connects with modern times enrich the way we experience art? Join the debate at this drop in discussion.

Exploring, critiquing and understanding the ethical implications of AI in a curatorial context is increasingly becoming a pressing need for museums. Could robots replace museum tour guides? Should data decide what exhibitions get commissioned? Can AI help to identify hidden stories in the archives? 

Join staff from The National Gallery, Wellcome Collection and Goldsmiths University to discuss how AI technologies could be used to develop new ways to see and experience art. Join the discussion, tell us your thoughts, pose questions to our experts and help to shape how museums think about these technologies.
